This instrumentation grant was used to procure several pieces of equipment with significantly enhanced research capabilities for studying the interactions of molecular beams and laser radiation with well defined surfaces in an ultra-high vacuum environment. A partial listing of the topics that are being explored in greater as a direct result of the new instrumentation includes surface phonon spectroscopy, the dynamics and energetics of heterogeneous interactions, thin film growth including nucleation in two-dimensional systems, gas surface energy transfer interaction potentials, and a variety of laser surface processes such surface photochemistry radical reactions, desorption, ablation, energy transfer, and photoemission.
